Erin’s Bio

Animals have been a huge part of my life since childhood. We always had a cat in the house, and I began pet sitting other family's cats, dogs, and fish in middle school in Michigan. I have been pet sitting for 22 years and have had animals living in my home for 34 years. Five rescue cats - three black and two brown tabbies - run the show at my house.
Animal care and welfare is central to my life. I worked at a no-kill cat shelter in Chicago for four years and following that, co-founded Lulu's Locker Rescue in September of 2011. We are a volunteer-run rescue who formed around the desire to help the most overlooked and highly-euthanized companion animals: black cats & dogs, and FIV positive cats. We regularly work with other rescues, shelters, and animal control to rescue, transport, vet, care for, promote, and rehome animals who would likely never have a chance of being rescued.
In addition to feeding, playing with, and administering medication for your animals, I can also offer behavioral help and reiki (energy healing), in times of stress, illness, or general distress. I have experience with kittens, adults, and seniors, as well as special needs animals.
I work part-time on various jobs, including my volunteer-work with Lulu's Locker, and welcome animal care into my schedule on a regular basis! It's important that each animal receives quality time and care, so I am mindful not to overbook my schedule to ensure your animal receives all the attention s/he desires.

Going out of town always causes stress for my partner and I, we have 2 cats and 1 dog that need special care. I turned to Sittercity for help, and ended up hiring Erin.

Erin was simply amazing. She handled everything from adhering to our pet's feeding (and walking) schedules to crushing up allergy medicine for our sneezy cat.

When missing our little guys, I would text Erin to check-in. She would not only promptly reply, but Erin would also provide pictures!

Knowing our pets were in such careful and attentive hands allowed us to enjoy our vacation.

I really cannot recommend Erin highly enough. I hope she is available to pet sit again on our next vacation.
